Your Favorite White Cake Mix?

Recommended Posts

Guest AutumnE

Im dying for my strawberry cake recipe and I used a white cake mix. I dont really want to make a homemade cake (yeah a bit lazy lately ;) ) I have seen namaste cake mix, has anyone tried that and did it taste good? If not please any others you would recommend.

If anybody wants the recipe let me know and I'll post it :)

Also if its a little bland flavor thats okay, Im going to add a bunch of other things to it. I just want to find one without a unpleasant taste.

Gluten Free Pantry Cake and Cookie Mix is very good :)

I make pineapple upside-down cake with it that is delicious, so it sounds like it would be good for your strawberry cake!

Thanks so much :)

I'll pm her and order the other one. Its a family favorite recipe of ours. Here's the recipe,

Strawberry Cake-

Make the white cake mix as directed on the box. While its fresh out of the oven poke holes all throughout the cake about an inch apart, I use the end of a wooden spoon. Mix a small box of strawberry jello with the hot water as directed. In place of the cold water added exchange it for a can of strawberry pop. Pour it over the cake and let it set in the fridge for a couple of hours. Make vanilla pudding and spread it over the top. Spread cool whip over that.

Optional- For more of a strawberry flavor you can blend up strawberries and spread them over the cake before the pudding is added.

Its best stored in the fridge

Im glad to post it :)

Its so easy!

You use a box of white cake mix and dont add any extra ingredients written on the directions. Mix a can of orange crush pop ( can use diet pop also) mix it and bake according to the directions. When cooled mix cool whip with powdered orange jello. Add by tasting to get the orange flavor you want. Its tasty and you can make it diet friendly by using diet pop and fat free or lowfat cool whip. Hope you like it!

Wow...so don't add anything but the crush? That's amazing...I wonder what the science behind it is that it still bakes etc ?! :o:D Does it matter the size/ounces of cake mix? I've had some that were for different size, ie. one 8" pan or two 8" pans. Thanks--I'm so curious to taste it! :D

Here's where I get alot of my recipes, they are all made from cake mixes. I just need to alter them to make it gluten free. http://www.recipegoldmine.com/cakemix/cakemix.html

I have always made it (before gluten free days) with duncan hines cake mix which makes two 8 inch cakes but I would just make it into a 13x9 pan. If your going to do it with one 8 inch cake mix I would just add a half can of pop. Im hoping the gluten free cake mixes wont make a difference because its one of my favorites. Im not sure how it cooks so good just that its really moist.
